People Dr Jason Smith
Principal Investigator, Oxford Martin Programme on Bio-Inspired Quantum Technologies
Lecturer in Materials
Jason is leader of the Photonic Nanomaterials Group (PNG) in which research is focused on optical and electronic properties of solid state nanostructures for applications such as optoelectronics devices, quantum information processing and photovoltaics.
At present the Group’s research involves two such systems - semiconductor nanocrystals and colour centres in diamond which they investigate using luminescence-based optical techniques.The group also develops ultra-small optical cavities for a range of fundamental science and applications including sensing and quantum information technologies.
